QUESTION:  

When cleaning polishing fixtures, does the entire object need to be submerged in an ultrasonic bath?

 

ANSWER:

Because the cavitation occurs within the water medium only, it is important that the entire object be submerged, with no air bubbles trapped in areas to be cleaned.  As long as the surfaces to be cleaned are in contact with the water, and because the cavitation happens on the molecular level, the cleaning effect can reach into very small crevices and is ideal for fiber optic polishing fixture cleaning.
